Florence, I was given the info from the coordinator but it came from the Doctor. Why would Iveta get annoyed if you are trying to find out more info about the donors, like hair and eye color? Were you given your drug protocol yet? If so, I'm curious as to what they have you on. I was just on estrogen pills and progesterone suppositories.

In answer to your train question, I just booked it while I was in Prague the same day. :)

    Pinkteaparty,
    yes you are right, I will try and ask Iveta, then if I get no answer I can ask Doctor Machac.
    I'm doing embryoadoption on a natural cycle  ^spin^
    I know it may sound weird, but my hormonal situation has been carefully monitored here in Italy, and Dr Machac, after receiving all the scans and info on my lining said yes, we can try.
    I will do acupuncture to help blood flow and optimize my natural ovulation (here in Florence we have the best fertility acupuncturist in Italy). Then I will have Pregnyl shot and take progesterone after ovulation. The transfer is 6 days after ovulation.
    Now more and more clinics offer this option, provided that the patient is able to monitor ovulation carefully both with sticks and scans. Of course more scans are needed, but here they aren't as expensive as in the UK or in the USA. Moreover my gyne is amazing, sometimes she does it for free  :)  She knows I have suffered a lot for my miscarriages, and she is Always supportive.
    Have you decided to come to Olomouc or are you still weighing your options?
    Thanks a lot for the train info!!

    Fingers crossed you get some more info from Iveta. Did they have you send a picture of yourselves or at least ask what your preferences were for donors? A natural cycle sounds amazing! You are right though about it being a small fortune here in USA with the cost of scans. That would surely get pricey. Exciting about your acupuncturist!

    Yeah, train station wasn't too bad. Buying the ticket was relatively painless but I researched the train we were taking and a backup train just in case before we got to the station. But I purchased there. It was quite cheap too!

    I'm still weighing my options. Right now, it's between Gennet, this clinic, and my old clinic Reprofit. I've been leaning towards staying in Prague, but I really haven't decided yet.

    This thread is pretty quiet. I hope all is well with you ladies! :)

    yes I sent them 4 photos! And I also filled out a very detailed form.
    I know it's difficult to decide which clinic to go! I asked the opinion of a fertility specialist here and he told me with Dr Machac you're in good hands  :) Also he told me Sanatorium Helios is a very good one (it's in Brno).
    Maybe you could stay in Prague and go to Olomouc or Brno for the day of the transfer... but that might be more stressful...

    Ann2016 are you still in Olomouc? How are you doing?

    Hope you are all well.

    Happy Easter!!

    Great that you were able to send 4 photos Florence and that you filled out a detailed form. It's nice to know that your fertility specialist recommends Dr Machac. The ladies who have gone to him seem to really like him.

    Last time we trained it in from Prague and then back the same day to Reprofit. I found it stressful, but maybe it won't be the second go around. I would probably stay over night though this time.

    Florence, when are you scheduled for your treatment?

    Happy Easter ladies!

    wanted to ask you if you did medical investigations after your cycle at Reprofit, I mean immunes, prolactin, thyroid, endocervical swabs, glycemia, hysteroscopy... Is everything ok?
    After my MCs I did anything I could - tons of tests, everything was perfect. My gyne told me: your eggs are as old as you are. Easy but cruel reality.
    For many different reasons I decided to become a mum late, and I have to accept the problem and move on.
    The only drug I'm currently taking is Eutirox, because TSH must be 2 or less.
    Also wanted to tell you that my gyne thinks iron, ferritin and VITD are very important, so I also did these. My gyne told me that very often people have low VITD, especially in northern and cold countries of course. But it also happens if you spend most of your time inside.
    If other important tips come to my mind, I will tell you!  :)
    Another thing: my acupuncturist says it's important to have a session right before and after the transfer (many scientific studies have shown an increase in the success rates, and the fertility specialist confirmed that). Well Iveta told me they offer this service and gave me the email address of the acupuncturist.
    As to my cycle, I have to email Iveta and the doctor first day of bleeding
    Talk soon!!

    Hi Florence!

    My last BFN they just thought it failed because I either got stomach flu or food poisoning. They didn't think it was related. I did have my TSH rechecked but it was in normal ranges. I too am having a late start as well. Hopefully, this year will be our time! I've read a lot about vit d deficiency and infertility. I had gotten my levels checked years ago and I was low. I was taking a supplement, not anymore though, and still try to get some time in the sun without sunscreen. I haven't gotten my level rechecked though.

    I'm very excited about your upcoming cycle! I have considered acupuncture myself. That's great that they work with a practitioner. :)

    Pinkteaparty - can you fly into Brno at all? I know you're coming from the states...not sure if you can fly into London first, then on to Brno from there (then Olomouc is half an hour or so by bus from Brno). Vienna is also closer than Prague to Brno/Olomouc (I'm sure you've looked into all this!) x

    FlorenceRoxanne - can I ask you how long it took Iveta to come back to you with your donors/protocol? I sent the forms back and photos (!) just over a month ago now and (other than confirmation of their receipt) have heard nothing back as yet. We're planning our cycle for July.
     
    Thanks :)

    Hi Honeybee!
    Someone chimes in at last!!
    Of this thread, I'm in contact with Pinkteaparty  :)

    I sent the forms and photos in January, but I told them that I would be able to come in April.
    So I literally told them: take your time to find good donors with the features we asked for, I prefer to wait more time than to have donors who don't look like us.
    Then I emailed them in March to say I would be able to come in April, my blastocyst was ready at the begininning of April, but due to my work commitments and my cycle I'm going first week of May.
    However consider that my "process" was a more difficult one, cause I chose a PGS tested blastocyst.
    Feel free to ask me anything, I will be happy to reply!

    Hi honeybee and Florence!

    Honeybee - I will def check Vienna and Brno. Last time I checked Vienna from states and it was more $ than Prague. I wish you luck with your cycle in July! Are you doing a donor embryo too? I would definitely email Iveta. It seems like a long time to not have heard from them. Please do keep us posted!

    Hi Florence, So excited that your cycling soon!
